Solid Waste & Recycling

Willimantic Waste now uses a Split Truck for Solid Waste & Recycling Pickup in Tolland.  As you can see from the picture, one half of the truck is for trash and the other half is for recycling.  Please make sure both your totes are put out the evening before your normal pickup day.  In using this truck, they are able to save time on their daily routes.

Town sponsored metal/bulky waste pick-ups are scheduled 2 times per year, at no charge to residents, in October and May on your normal pick-up day.  Reservations are required at least (4) business days in advance of your pick-up day for a Town sponsored metal/bulky waste pick-up.

Our vendor, Willimantic Waste Paper, will do 10 additional monthly metal/bulky waste at curbside pick-ups per year with the resident being charged by the vendor $32 per pick-up for up to (4) reasonable sized items.  Reservations are not confirmed until payment is received by Willimantic Waste Paper for those months where there is a charge.  Paid reservations can only be done by calling Willimantic Waste Paper at the phone number below at least (4) business days in advance of your pick-up day.  Oil pick-up at curbside has been eliminated due to environmental concerns.  Some auto parts businesses take used motor oil for a small fee.  Bill’s Auto Parts and Anderson Automotive are two local options.  All other procedures for bulky waste will remain the same.

To schedule a pick-up please call (800) 286-5335 or (860) 423-4527 or go here and click on “Tolland Bulk Waste Pick Up”.  Remember, you must schedule at least 4 days in advance.
